1My heart, O God, is steadfast; before You, Lord and King;
To You I will make music; with all my soul, I’ll sing.
2Awake, oh harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn.
3I’ll praise You among nations; to peoples sing Your song.
4Your love is great, and higher than are the heav’ns, O God;
Your faithfulness and truth do reach to the skies abroad.
5Exalted o’er the heavens, O God shall be Your worth;
And let Your wondrous glory be over all the earth.
6Save us, O God, and help us with Your hand from above;
That we may be delivered – all those whom You do love.
7God spoke from His Place holy: “In triumph, I’ll mark out
both Shechem and the Valley of Succoth round about.
8/9For Gilead is mine, and mine is Manasseh, too;
I’ll make Moab my washbowl; on Edom, toss my shoe.
Ephraim will be my helmet, my scepter Judah touts;
And over strong Philistia, I will in triumph shout.
10Who will lead me to Edom, the city fortified?
11Won’t You, O God, who’ve left us, who’ve not stayed on our side?
12Give us Your aid against foes, for help of man is vain;
13With God we will defeat foes; the victory we’ll gain.
